Default Rapid breathing

My 8 week old pup got some vaccinations today and started breathing rapidly. I took him to the vet and they gave him a steroid shot. Hes still breathing rapidly. Has anyone experience this?

Is it possible to call the Vet back and let them know this is still going on?

Hi! I did. They said its normal especially because hes a puppy. Hes back to normal except peeing. Hes never peed on my bed or his crate so Im assuming the steroid shot had something to do with it.

Never had the panting but he did develop a hard lump that took over a month to disappear.

Glad to hear your pup is ok now and yes steroids make them pee more often. My chihuahua has had reactions to shots before. He would pant and his face would swell. After the our vet always had us give him benedryl before and he also gave a steroid and a few to bring home just in case. He has been fine since, we no longer needed the steroid but continued with the benedryl. Rapid panting to me is dangerous and cause to take them immediately to vet.

We have not had the heavy breathing/ panting either after shots, but we also had a lump on our new puppy after his first rabies shot that lasted a couple of weeks and gradually went down.

One of our older boys had hives once a few years ago and we were back and forth to the vet over a couple of days- the Benadryl and other meds they gave him would clear him up. We'd take him home, and an hour or two later he was bumped/hived up again.

We never found the root cause- assume it was some kind of a bug/ critter bite. He was about 8 months or so when it happened. Has not happened since.

We have a chart now at home from our vets office for antihistamines to show the quantity and frequency we can give our boys based on weight. If we have a new issue we would contact the vet, but it is helpful to have this so we can medicate them to some degree when needed.

My 9 year old boxer has lost weight - quickly. She has developed some black bumps on her legs and hind quarters. Periodically she breathes extremely heavy and her heart feels like it is pumping like crazy. I laid with her for an hour this morning until it stopped. I'm so worried. any ideas?

Boxers have been known to have allergic reactions to the Lepto vaccine please make sure this was not one of the shots your dog got. I think each boxer owner should confer with their Vet to see if their dog really needs the vaccine or not I chose not to give it to my dogs but I don't let them drink out of puddles or stagnant water either. The steriod shot will make them pee a lot and sometimes it will just run out of them when they are sleeping. It goes away when the steriod wears off. I hope you pup feels better

Oh please get your dog to the Vet as soon as possible that sounds a lot like DCM and the sooner you get it some treatment you may have a little more time with your dog. Please don't hesitate to take her and get her checked out! I lost two of my boxers to this it may be something that is no big deal but the symptoms she is having can be a very big deal I wish you the best. I don't know about the lumps on the legs but weight loss and rapid heartbeat are a bad sign.
